Describe your Experience. Pros, Cons, Comments.

I ordered it custom sized, which cost 5 USD extra.

Pros
- I asked them to change the bows to purple, which they did.
- The materials used are amazing and practical. It's not flimsy or cheap looking, and the amount of details in the costume is amazing. It's also very complete, as it included the leggings and the soulgem. I was a little worried whether the leggings would fit or not, but they fit perfectly!
- Well-made. I didn't see any loose threads or anything.
- It completely matches the provided reference material (which is very detailed!).
- Great communication: they reply very quickly and they had kept me updated about everything!

Cons
- The bow on the back was attached with a safety pin, and the bow on the front was just the ribbon, I had to figure out how to tie it and attach it to the costume myself. Nothing I couldn't fix myself, though.
- The skirt was slightly too long and slightly too big, but I solved it by "overturning" the waistband which made it a little tighter and shorter, and it wasn't visible with the white shirt covering it. It was only a matter of one cm, so nothing serious.

Final Grade: A
It's a shame they don't take any commissions off images, though.
